» 2016 Holiday Gift Guide (and Giveaway!)

Without fail gift-giving becomes a chore as each Christmas approaches. We try our best to purchase toys that won’t end up in the trash or Goodwill pile before winter break is even over. We also strive to find gifts that create interaction and experiences rather than providing just one more thing to sit on a shelf. This year, we’ve had the opportunity to check out some different options that might not necessarily be on your Black Friday ads or the standard Lego/Xbox/American Girl, but are definitely worth considering. We’ve created a series of posts for varying ages, just click on each link to access the lists and feedback.
